Background

One of Central America's most powerful uberhumans is known as Beneficiar (Slaughter), and in keeping with this region's poor luck he's a monster in human form. He was a drug cartel member that started his life as a drug mule for the Contras and the CIA. Alvaro Santo was more than willing to sell out his old friends and allies for money and power. So when Iran-Contra blew up in the CIA's face he settled down in Nicaragua for the long term rather than face the music in the United States or Columbia. The DEA was on to him, and there were all those bodies in the basement of his house in Florida, that was getting difficult to deal with.

Alvaro liked killing people, and he did it rather a lot. By the time he was in his early twenties he had killed dozens of people, and not just on the orders of the Cartel. He would have been a monster no matter what, but at least just a human monster. However, each time Alvaro killed someone he got a little thrill from it. A little something extra. Just that little bit stronger or faster, and then he killed that little girl who could see the future. And afterwards Alvaro could also see the future.

So he did the easy thing, he joined the Contras and became a high ranking figure in that organization. While working for the Contras and the CIA Alvaro was able to wipe out all of Nicaragua's uberhuman population (what there was of it) and make a pretty solid dent in the number of uberhumans in Central America generally. For the time being he's contented himself with what he calls "lesser killings" until some better victims come along. He's canny enough not to go running after prey and put himself into a situation where he might get himself in too deep.

Alvaro is considered an ally of the United States. Although his hands are soaked in blood he's managed to cover up any killings of Americans or American allies. He's made himself comfortably wealthy by being a brutal tool of the CIA, various dictators around the world, and the drug cartels, but he spends most of his time at home in Nicaragua. Thanks to his newfound power Alvaro is going to be haunting the region for some time, attempts to hunt down the mysterious "cape killer" have failed. He can just fade into the countryside. Nicaragua is sparsely populated, so finding someone like Alvaro in the wilderness is next to impossible.

Beneficiar should be considered an ally of Malkin (Costa Rica) because she has no actual powers for him to steal she's relatively safe from him. He finds her amusing, as a master of a craft might find an ambitious apprentice amusing. He's also fond of El Disenador in much the same way a meat lover is fond of cattle ranchers.

 

Personality

Beneficiar is a homicidal maniac with the power to destroy just about any military or police force brought to bear upon him, and just about any uber powered person as well. He's canny enough not to let anyone know about this, but he's as powerful as just about any one other uberhuman and he knows it. Not just because of the many powers that he's stolen, but because he's a vicious serial killer with years of experience at killing people and evading capture.

Beneficiar is motivated mostly by instinct. He wants what he likes, and he likes killing and being safe. In most other respects he's deeply dysfunctional, and has difficulty relating to normal humans except as prey.

 

Quote

"Why Nicaragua? Because I like it here, lots of space, lots of wilderness. Yes. Very nice."

 

Powers

Beneficiar's powers are not built as a VPP or any complexity like conditional characteristic increases. Each time he kills another uber he gets a few dozen character points of powers and statistic increases (and vulnerabilities) that are based loosely on the powers of the person he's killed by GM's fiat. This shouldn't come up too often because Alvaro has decimated the local Uberhuman population, he doesn't travel much, and he gets little but enjoyment out of killing normal people. When he sees a low powered Uber he's likely to "snap them up", but he avoids open confrontations with the more powerful type of uber unless he's sure he can avoid retaliation. Note that he doesn't have to even kill another uberhuman, he just has to be around when it happens.

Beneficiar prefers to attack from ambush, using his skills to convince people that he's no threat, or even an ally. Best of all is when he can drug someone and take them away someplace safe to play with at his leisure. If he's ever discovered and forced into an open confrontation he'll pull out all the stops, using his martial arts and skills with great cleverness. He's studied uberhumans extensively, and will know about any weaknesses or shortcomings of an enemy that are publicly known. His first priority will be escape, but he'll be back to take his vengeance on anyone who discovers and reveals him.

Beneficiar doesn't actually actively hunt other Ubers despite his raw power. He's absorbed the powers of a super genius and a mild precognitive, so he knows how to plan for the long term. The way he sees it, he's immortal thanks to his regenerative powers, so there's little reason to rush. He will hunt anyone whom he sees as a direct threat to his safety and security. A number of police officers and their families have disappeared in Nicaragua, as well as one CIA case officer. To make Beneficiar more powerful give him the powers of any superbeings that you'd rather not use in your game. To make him less powerful shave away at his power sets and ability scores until he's down to the level you need, but make sure that he remains frighteningly skilled and intelligent.

 

Appearance

Alvaro Santo is a handsome Mestizo man in his early thirties. He's a vibrant and gregarious man, but equally able to change his face and personality to match the desires of the people around him. He's charm personified, but anyone with enough telepathic power will see him for what he is, one of the ugliest and most monstrously evil uber alive. As Beneficiar Alvaro does not have a costume per se, his force field shrouds him in darkness, and has served to protect his identity.
